I got my crow....and my crow label I made on my computer...I have no special program/graphics on my computer just shapes and fonts. Then I brushed the label with coffee and cinnamon on the label.
Next I used modge podge to apply the label.
I shredded newspaper to glue on the lid for the nest.
Next I put together the shredded newspaper on the lid and then glued the bird on top of that. Put the finished lid on top of the jar and voila...a crow canister!
For the tray, I used spray paint and scrapbook paper. I love polka dots and try to keep it stocked in my supply room!
I only spray paint the edges, then apply modge podge, then smooth the paper on, working carefully to not tear the paper. I have found that the thicker scrapbook paper works beautifully, and never gives me any trouble!
I'm trying to make my room more inspiring to do the laundry...buwahahahaha (http://theinspiredroom.net/ )Be sure to check out Melissa's Life is Beautiful post on making your home more inspiring!
